Eat Pizza and raise money for Meals on Wheels.
Let's be honest, I don't need a charity to eat pizza. It might be one of my favourite foods in the world! Maybe I'm not cultured, maybe I'm too picky, I do however enjoy all kinds of food but pizza..well, let's just say I have an extra special love affair. Don't tell me wife, although she might already know. So now they tell me I can eat pizza AND help Meals on Wheels! This might be just the excuse I need to go out for dinner every night this week.
Over 40 of Calgary’s best Pizza Restaurants and Participants will engage in a 10 day Pizza Battle, putting up their best pizza in one of three categories; Thin, Thick, Unique. Partial proceeds of every pizza sold will go to Calgary Meals On Wheels.
Winners in each category will be determined by an online public vote, to be revealed on September 26th, and announced at a wrap party on October 15th. A monopoly style passport will be handed out to the public encouraging them to visit the restaurants, taste the pizzas, and get their passports stamped to win prizes! All in the name of Charity.
9 local Food Bloggers are participating in a Food Blogger Pizza Challenge running Sept 26-Oct 5. With 3 Mystery Ingredients to choose from its anyone’s guess what will come out of their kitchens. Check out the Food Bloggers Pizza Page, available September 26, to vote for your favourite pizza creation!
